The history of the Kia C’eed began six years ago at the Geneva Motor Show and Kia is repeating history with a second unveiling at the same show. The 2012 Geneva Motor Show will be the backdrop for the introduction of the second generation C’eed. The first details provided for the new sedan will be a real threat on the C-segment market.

The new Kia C’eed is longer, wider, and lower than its predecessor and features a more dynamic and sophisticated styling. At the front of the vehicle is Kia’s new trademark "tiger-nose" grille and aggressive, wraparound headlamp clusters housing signature LED daytime running lights. A steeply raked A-pillar, a very low belt-line, and an integrated rear spoiler will accentuate the sporty aesthetics of the new model.

On the interior, Kia has opted for a more premium look and feel, higher perceived quality, improved switchgear, touch-screen technology, and enhanced driving position ergonomics. The dashboard features an aircraft-theme, the main control panel has been placed around the steering wheel, and the main control groups such as audio and air-conditioning have been segregated to bring a more premium, luxurious, big car feel to the interior. The rest is all about soft and high quality materials.

There are no details on the engine line-up just yet, but we’re sure details will be revealed when the Geneva Motor Show opens its doors.

I like it because of its new platform, and because of the latest technology that has been applied to it.

Kia C’eed created their ultimate car of the year; this C’eed has a longer and wider platform. It’s good that they have chosen the technology of these modern times. I wonder what is specification and output of its engine.

The front bumper looks great on a tiger-look. This C’eed was a threat to other car companies. This car has aggressive exterior and sportiest look.

On exterior, everything was absolutely great. The black finishing gave a luxurious accent. I hope that I could have the engine details of this C’eed before the Geneva Motor Show.

Wow! The body paint is very impressive, and it comes out to be a really unique concept. It features more dynamic and sophisticated styling. I’m just wondering how the interior would look.
